  • Some Disney Magic on our doorstep

    We headed down to Dover today to see the Disney Magic, who's currently in port as part of a repatriation mission to get crew members home. We knew she was in early this morning, but had no idea how long she'd be staying and didn't want to miss her. Of course, she's still there now and it's now the evening over here.

    It was so lovely to see her, even if it was a bit surreal, knowing she had no passengers on board.

    I was hoping you’d get to see the Magic. So glad you did! I read online (DCL Blog maybe?), that she might stay there until her refurb later in the year, but who knows. At this point, everything is up in the air.

      How nice that you got to see the ship. I'm sure the crew members are anxious to get home.

        It is so nice that you were able to see the Magic. I sure hope I get to sail on her in December for my birthday. My fingers, toes, arms and legs are all crossed hoping we get to take the cruise.

          I was also hoping that you two would get to see her when she arrived at Dover. A wee bit of Disney Magic!

            She's still there this morning. However, according to this article, there's a slightly disturbing reason why she's still there.

              I'm sure they are, but from what I've read this morning, it may be a while yet before that happens.

                I really hope it works out for you. Yesterday Mark asked if we could still do the Panama canal cruise in November, but I told him there were too many variables. There's no way I want to add in international travel at the moment. If they were sailing from the UK, that would be a different matter.

                  Thanks for sharing. I do hope those crew members get home soon.

                    This is disturbing and I feel for these crew members.

                      So do I. I have no idea what's going on, but the Magic is still in Dover. I guess she may be here for some time...

                        I hope DCL is able to get all the kinks worked out and get the crew members home soon.

                          So do I. She's still there this morning, but I have no idea whether the crew are still on board. I looked last night and didn't see any further updates.s

                            Any updates? Is the Magic still docked in Dover?
